I do love a challenge, especially a papercrafting challenge. So my card today uses the colours from the Global Design Project’s current colour challenge.
Definitely Christmassy colours, however I have been making heaps of Christmas cards, so decided not to make a Christmas card with these colours! I have stamped the flowers with black Stazon ink and then coloured them with a Blender Pen and Cherry Cobbler ink, then fussy cut them and popped them onto the card with a glue dot to give them a little bit of height.
The background is swish of watercolouring using a Water Painter, lots of water and some Mint Macaron ink. It’s interesting that it looks a very different colour in the photo to the Mint Macaron cardstock of the butterfly.
I hope you are having a successful day with your creating. Happy stamping! Chris
Another card that I made for a challenge again today, and I ended up featuring the Quiet Meadow stamp set again. It seems to be a current favourite! I do like the different elements in this set, which combine so beautifully with many other stamps.
My card uses the largest die from the Beautiful Leaves Dies as a background behind the flowers.
The flowers from Quiet Meadows have been coloured using an Aqua Brush with inks, and then fussy cut (the dies will be in my next order!!) and I have used some of the leaves from Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set to complete my posy of flowers. I have added a few splodges of colour, very lightly to add a little more of the pretty Pale Papaya colour.
I enjoy making all sorts of different styles of cards, in particular, I love making vintage style cards. But sometimes I also love to make Clean and Simple (CAS) cards, and sometimes I like to make them very clean!!
This card is a colour challenge from CAS Colours and Sketches challenges, using the colours below. I used Stampin’ Write markers to colour directly to the stamp, using the three colours on the one stamp. Originally, I had planned to add a sentiment and perhaps a few splotches, but in the end I decided I liked it just like that.
What do you think? Would you have added more to it? Leave me a comment and let me know. Happy stamping!
